Serie A 2023/24 Top Scorers

1. Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan, 13 goals)

Martinez is the man for the big occasion for Inter Milan.

The Argentine star scored a first-half equaliser in the match against Juventus, helping Inter salvage a point in their blockbuster showdown last Sunday, per Eurosport.

With that strike, Martinez stretched his goal tally in Serie A to 13 this season.

He has scored in eight out of Inter's 13 games this campaign, with the match against Salernitana the pick of the bunch.

Martinez made history in that contest, becoming the first player in Serie A to score four goals as a substitute.

2. Olivier Giroud (AC Milan, 7)

Giroud failed to add to his goal tally in AC Milan's 1-0 win over Fiorentina last Saturday.

The Frenchman was handed a two-match Serie A ban after receiving a red card in their match against Lecce.

He now trails Martinez by six goals in the Golden Boot race, with Giroud stuck at seven after Matchday 13.

2. Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo, 7)

Berardi grabbed a share of second place after scoring twice in Sassuolo's thrilling 4-3 victory against Empoli over the weekend.

He gave Sassuolo a 3-2 lead after scoring a penalty in the 66th minute. The match looked to be headed for a draw after Matias Vina's own goal made it 3-3 in the 86th minute.

Berardi came to the away side's rescue, scoring the match-winner in second-half stoppage time.

4. Victor Osimhen (Napoli, 6)

Osimhen returned to action in Napoli's match against Atalanta, entering as a substitute in their 2-1 victory.

He wasn't among the goalscorers, however, with the Nigerian striker now trailing Martinez by seven goals in the Golden Boot race.

He has some work to do to retain the scoring title he won last season.

4. Romelu Lukaku (Roma, 6)

Lukaku started in Roma's 3-1 victory over Udinese but failed to find the back of the net last Sunday.

The Belgian forward now trails Martinez by seven goals heading into Matchday 14.

4. Nicolas Gonzalez (Fiorentina, 6)

Gonzalez lost ground to Martinez in the Golden Boot race after the Fiorentina star failed to find the back of the net in Saturday's clash with AC Milan.

He now trails the Inter Milan forward by seven goals, with the Argentine ace stuck at six after Matchday 13.

4. Andrea Colpani (Monza, 6)

Colpani is another guy who failed to add to his scoring tally last weekend.

Cagliari held him in check in their Serie A encounter against Monza, with the two sides cancelling each other in a 1-1 draw.

Colpani remains tied for fourth place in the Golden Boot race with six goals in Serie A this season.

4. Matias Soule (Frosinone, 6)

Soule also grabbed a share of fourth place in Serie A's Golden Boot race after scoring the opener in Frosinone's 2-1 win over Genoa.

He gave the home side a 1-0 lead in the 34th minute.
